  • At @kokumrestaurant where our small share plates take modern Indian cuisine to a new level. Tandoori prawns with pomegranate and Prawn bhaji taste as sensationally delicious 😋 as they look. @marinamirage
  • Ask for pearls on date night... Balsamic pearls, that is. The little orbs of darkness add the spark of imagination to the caprese salad, backed up by arancini balls at @cabukee.  Dining in the midst of a French-style village adds the romance at a fraction of the cost. #emeraldlakesgoldcoast #arancini Review on website foodgoldcoast.com.au
  • Do we have to choose? Thankfully not, because these desserts at Bambino Italian are both exquisite: Homemade chocolate spaghetti with fresh berries, vanilla mascarpone and chocolate sauce to pour over the top, and Tiramisu. Oh my lord! Not too sweet, it was a chocolate feast for three! @bambinoitalian Hand model: @thefoodhedonist
  • Looking for a new weekend date night spot? Head to @cabukee in the magical setting of the French-style village of Emerald Lakes. Chef Fin Tully has designed a menu of share-style dishes and wines to match. Casual and friendly, Happy Hour goes from 4pm - 6pm on Friday and Saturday nights with $5 house wines and $ 20 Corona buckets. See you there!
  • There's a reason why Wagyu-ya on Chevron is considered the coast's best yakiniku - Japanese style BBQ you cook at the table. They serve Jack's Creek wagyu and hormone-free Black Angus. Freshness and the quality of the ingredients is at the core of Japanese cuisine. At $32pp the weekend BBQ lunch buffet is a feast! Be sure to book. @wagyuyaonchevron @jackscreekbeef #ketofeast #keto
  • Turkish restaurant Alachati could almost take us to another place -the owner's hometown near Istanbul. We dined here at breakfast, choosing Turkish sausage and eggs, and Shakshuka, but lunch and dinner menus look even more exciting. @alachati_broadbeach #turkishfood #foodgoldcoast
  • Pani puri, popular street snacks in India, are usually filled with potato, onions, chickpeas and tamarind chutney. At Kokum, they have a lighter filling of potato, sprouts and Kakadu plum, presented on top of a shot glass of sol kadhi, a digestive drink, to be poured into the semolina shell before eating it whole, a textured flavour explosion! 💥 @kokumrestaurant @marinamirage #mainbeach
  • Cooked over coals, every meal at Brazilian Flame 🔥 is a keto feast of all-you-can-eat succulent goodness brought to your table by wait staff. You can enjoy twelve different cuts of meat as well as a salad buffet, hot dishes and dessert from $34.95 pp on Mondays, with live music and special offers on other nights.
